FBA vs COV Today Match Prediction: The much-coveted Final of BPL 2022 pits Fortune Barishal against Comilla Victorians, arguably two sides who have played like title contenders since the commencement of the tournament. And this would mark their fourth faceoff of the season, with Victorians trailing by 2-1, which includes a close defeat in the 1st Qualifier to the Barishal. Nonetheless, the Imrul Kayes-led side bounced back comprehensively in the 2nd Qualifier, as they beat the Chattogram Challengers by 7 wickets to have another shot at the title. Fortune Barishal, led by Shakib Al Hasan, are yet to win their maiden title in BPL, which is something they would eye at any expense in the upcoming matchup.

Shakib Al Hasan’s been Fortune Barishal’s mainstay throughout the Bangladesh Premier League 2022. While he’d be adding value with his all-round abilities, the onus would’ve to be shared by the likes of Chris Gayle and Munim Shahriar with the willow, and a bowling quartet in Dwayne Bravo, Shafiqul Islam, Mehedi Hasan Rana and off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman.
Comilla Victorians are a pound-to-pound match and perhaps, even at an advantage for this matchup for they have a set of players who have been on title-winning sides in franchise cricket – Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Sunil Narine, and Mustafizur Rahaman to name a few – and in addition to their noteworthy form in BPL 2022, they are well adept in putting up a solid show when it matters the most.
Fortune Barishal would be eyeing for their maiden trophy in the tournament. Yes, they do have a decent bowling attack with Dwayne Bravo leading the charts, followed by Shakib Al Hasan, Shafiqul Islam and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. However, the finale could get sour, if in case there’s another batting collapse in the cards as was the case in the 1st Qualifier. Meanwhile, Comilla Victorians have a massive star cast which is arguably more bankable from a knockout perspective. As per the betting odds and FBA vs COV dream11 prediction, Comilla Victorians have been backed as the favorite to win.
